When you have been felting for a few years, it is tempting to think of yourself as an experienced feltmaker. Spending a couple of weeks with Mandy Nash at her annual felt school in Wales was an eye-opener for me. Her approach to feltmaking made me reassess my own practice, and think more about design and technique than I had before. Many of her students begged her to write a book on feltmaking ... “Making Felt Bags” is the result.
There is so much excellent, practical, tried-and-tested felting advice in this book, but I think Mandy's best is ' read the whole book before you start' - I certainly wish I had had the opportunity before I attempted my felted slippers
